HICAP seeking volunteers
The Alamo Area Agency on Aging is seeking to recruit at least 10 RSVP volunteers to assist with its Health Information and Counseling Program (HICAP), an information and advocacy program provided at no charge to seniors since 1993.
Interested volunteers will be trained Wednesday, Sept. 5, from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in room 100 of the Agricultural Building at 210 E. Live Oak St. in Seguin. Lunch will be provided.
The one-day training will consist of two sessions: “What is a HICAP Outreach Volunteer?” will concentrate on how volunteers fit into the HICAP program, what the rules of volunteering are, and what support volunteers can expect. The second session, “What does a HICAP Outreach Volunteer Actually Do?,” will focus on actual examples of taking information into an outreach setting, what to expect, what to do, and what not to do as a HICAP volunteer.
RSVP HICAP volunteers help other seniors and themselves move from feeling helpless to feeling empowered by gaining a fuller understanding of health-insurance options.
For more information or to volunteer, call Ted Wolber or Stephen Doerr at 830-379-0300 or email Stephen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
